Do people really meet other people?

I am curious.

Do people really meet new people face to face via this internet thing?

On one level this has been a lot of fun...I have a lot of new blogging friends. There are some really amazing people out there sharing their thoughts.

It is almost like there's a whole community using this as a vehicle to explore consciousness. Thisis something I would never have guessed existed until I ran into GoddessOfTheDawnand [blog Goddess1946] and others.

But one of the supposed goals is to actually meet people face to face.

Anyone care to share a story of succeeding at meeting someone via this?

I can't speak for others ofcourse, but as for me: YES, I have met quite a few people face to face via this internet thing, on different continents, in different countries, in different circumstances and for different reasons

and most of the time it was grrrreat

Cool. It is good to know this works for people.

My next scheme to meet people face to face involves the idea of an AdultFriendFinder Blogger Meet and Greet some weekend this Fall.

It is either that, or a round trip air ticket from Tucson to Nova Scotia...and I could probably spring for the hotel conference facilities for that one.

I have met many people face to face via the internet also.
There is a meeting in Montreal the end of this month and
we hope to have one in Va. before the year is over.

Safira, Impish Pixie and I are heading out tomorow nite
to Newport News, Va. for a local meet and greet of people
who are on AdultFriendFinder...and the three of us met a couple of other
bloggers locally also for dinner. One drove up from N.C. !

Just a little food for thought.............
If you really want to be happy, nobody can stop you...

Keep me posted on whenever such things are planned. Occasionally they let me out of the state and sometime in the next few months have to make a run to DC to beg for money from Congress for our poor little border town.

*sigh* hope to get to DC again. hm...

Yes: I've met many ppl via the internet in real life. Some from this site. some (OK: one) from alt (though he's now on this site too thanks to me). Some from other sites and even just chat programs nothing to do with relationships at all. I totally love meeting people.

"Successful"... not exactly sure what you're meaning by that Sex? Friendship? Simply the meeting itself? A long-term relationship? And I must say... I guess in some ways i've been "successful" in all the above.

I thing "success" at this point just means "meet".
Getting really curious about some of the people responding to the blog..and reading theirs. There's been a level of openness that one does really encounter least not for a while. Maybe that's because it is safe to hide behind the wall of cyberspace.
